Proto-pasta, a leading US filament designer and producer, was formed nearly 5 years ago based on a passion for machinery design and making coupled with an desire to make more materials available for 3d printing. What started as an exploration of extrusion technology, made possible by access to technology, and with a sole focus on engineering materials, blossomed into a diverse portfolio of materials meant to inspire, include, and connect to a greater community or artists, designers, makers, and tinkerers as well as engineers.

Proto-pasta's strength is in rapid innovation and bringing original material ideas to market. Likely best known for our carbon fiber and metal composites, Proto-pasta combines solid particles like metal powder into plastic for a plastic-like printing experience and metal-like finish. Other popular composites like Matte Fiber combine plant fibers and plastic to create layer-hiding, low-gloss texture. In a similar way, we use metallic fleck texture to de-emphasis layers and create beautiful, automotive paint-like finishes on printed parts.

Our mission is to explore the intersection of craft and technology, express that experience through the Proto-pasta brand, and cultivate positive social and environmental impact in doing so. Much like the evolution of hardware, computing, and electronics, access to 3D Printing has created a more broad and social culture of innovation, and we're super-excited to lead the market towards a positive experience!

Not only will the contest give participants a chance to win various prizes, but it will also mark the start of a user-driven 3D printing filament community, one that will help optimize the way that we all use our FDM 3D printing technology. The more quality settings that are uploaded possible, the more the 3D printing experience will become easier, more reliable and less time consuming. Together, all of the inputted print settings will be consolidated into big data and used to create the best profiles for every 3D printer.
